Lydia Ko (New Zealand), world No. 1 in women’s golf, replaced her caddy ahead of the first tournament of the season.
Golf Week reported on the 8th that Lydia Ko decided to use David Jones as her caddy for the LET Aramco Saudi Ladies International, which opens on the 16th.
Lydia Ko, who got married in December last year, has not participated in the tournament for more than a month due to honeymoon and winter training, and Aramco Saudi Ladies International is the first tournament this year.
Until recently, Jones took the bag of Nick Taylor (Canada) of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, but his reputation is quite high as he helped many players win major tournaments on the LPGA Tour.
In 2016, Jeon In-ji (29) caddyed when she won the Evian Championship, and Park Seong-hyun (30) won the 2017 US Women’s Open and 2018 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, while Jones was the caddy.
This is also the second time she has a relationship with Lydia Ko. When Lydia Ko climbed to the top of the Lotte Championship in 2021 and washed her three-year thirst for championship, Jones was the caddy. 안전놀이터
Lydia Ko did not say why she parted ways with Derek Kistler, who jointly won world No. 1 and Player of the Year awards from the second half of 2021 and carried the bag throughout her last year.
However, it seems that she intends to set a new resolution and atmosphere for the new season.
Lydia Ko changes her caddy often. She used to say that if she got good grades, she was the caddy duck.
